New Orleans' Tax Power in Danger Hucy Long Prepares Billy Seizing It for State BATON ROUGE, La. —(/!')--Senator Hucy P. Long smiled broadly Wednesday as his obedient House of Representatives cracked clown on the hostile New Orleans city government, already harrassed by the presence of state troops. - The-'senator rfi«lked--up—his first victory of the special session, now a day old, when the house adopted a resolution to investigate the New Orleans officials'. The action was described as similar to the New York investigation by Samuel Seabury which resulted in the resignation of Mayor James J. Walker. It was aimed at Mayor T. Scinmcs Walmslcy of New Orleans, bitter enemy of Long since his Old Regular organization defeated the senator's candidates at the city polls last January. The house quickly voted to change its methods of procedure to speed up action on what anti-administrationists describe as a large number of "spits" bills against New Orleans. The rules were suspended, and all measures sent pell mcll to one committee, which met immediately to report them out. This spectacular procedure will permit final passage of all the legislation Thursday. The .senate, where Long holds aj comfortable majority, met for a short time and adjourned .waiting to act on measures passed by the house. The legislature had before it a score (if measures which could almost completely throttle Hie finances of the city and cither which would increase the power of I<niiK. One provided that the city could not tax anything not already taxed by the state, another that all money collected from pasolinc taxes should he placed in (he stale treasury, and still another which would create a state police force with power to make ar- For Attorney General <3 F Arkansas Ashley Baxter 23 25 26 46 25 27 Ben ton ........

Oscar Humphrey 8,032 vote.i short of a majority over his two opponents in the first primary. With more than 200,000 votes accounted for, the count stood: Humphrey 94,717; Parker 61,690; Parrish 41,265. It is estimated that, 7,000 absentee ballots will be counted Friday, and only the official returns can determine definitely whether a runoff is necessary. .1180 1880 97,831 109,858 South Points Way to U. S. Recovery Tugwell Says Bankhead Law Introduces New Economic Era CLEMSON COLLEGE. S. C. — (/Pi— The south has pointed the way to the nation in economic and agricultural planning. He;xfor G. TngweH, assistant secretary of agriculture, told more than 2.000 persons here Wednesday at the state's annual Farm and Home institute. "Under the Now Deal," ho said, "the South is coming into its own again and as the partner of the North and West in developing our national future along new and co-operative lines." He said Ihe South, in expressing overwhelming approval of the Bank- bend cotton control act, had pointed to a new agricultural era which other sections had been slow in following but whih wi'.s beginning to take form. As to the future, he said, the South itself must decide. He declared this area must again take the leadership in transforming temporary control programs into something of a permanent policy, and declared il musl be done, especially in the South, in time to influence 135 spring planting. 'Hie South, he said, musl also decide its future attitude toward Ihe world cotton market. "I doubt if you will care to enter into world compelition again for six- cent cotton," he said, "but that is a problem for the future."

A. Graves, campaign manager for Governor Futrell. The governor carried the county by a vole of approximately 4 to 1. Editor Washburn, militant critic of Attorney General Norwood during the campaign, wrote a widely- reproduced editorial in which he said that he would be willing to go hungry to bring about Norwood's defeat. The attorney general replied with an open Jetter that closed with: ''As always, with the greatest contempt." Nearly complete returns from the county for attorney general gave: Bailey 2,205; Norwood 672. Huge Majority Here With complete returns on Nevada county and a nearly-complete count for Hempstead, A. H. Washburn sent the following lele- gram lo Carl Bailey, Lillle Rock, late Wednesday afternoon: "In behalf of Hempstead county and her neighbor Nevada whose combined vote gave you 4,229 to your opponent's 1,391 I congratulate you on a magnificent victory. You carried Hcmpslead and Nevada Ihree to one. The public has rediscovered a forgotten office— and as Arkansas' next Attorney General may you always be the faithful and fearless public servant in whom the people of this city and section particularly have placed their trust." politician, was considered by many observers to be practically unbeatable. Two years ago Mr. Bailey toured the slate against Mr. Norwood in behalf of his friend Boyd Cyperl, former Pulaski county prosecutor, under whom he had served as deputy. The two made a gallant fight but Cypert was defeated after a close contest. "(iratcfiil" says Bailey Mr. Bailey made the following statement: "A computation of returns from all but a few scattered precincts indicate my nomination for attorney general. "I am not unmindful of Ihe serious responsibilities of the attorney general's office and I pledge my word to keep faithfully the public trust which has been imposed to me. "I am humbly grateful lo my friends and to Ihc people of Arkansas who have demonstrated in this campaign that a man can be elected to public office without money and a political machine." One Run-off Contest Likely Additional returns in contested races for state officers made little change in the relative standing of the candidates. The only important, change is that il now seems that State Auditor Oscar Humphrey may have to go into a runoff i-nntest with Charley Parker of Camden. whereas earlier it had seemed possible that Mr. Humphrey might have a clear majority over his two opponents.

The Democratic choice in Nebraska is Representative E. R. Burke, enthusiastic Roosevelt follower. He is opposed by Robert G. Simmons, former representative, who takes the emphatic stand that the president is lieaded in the wrong direction. A. V. (Honest Vic) Donahey. former governor, is the Democratic senatorial nominee in Ohio. Like Burke, he endorses the administration's course. The voters have a clear choice between endorsement of support of the "New Deal'' in November, for Senator Fess, veteran Republican and one of the president's most, scathing critics, was selected to oppose Donahey. President Roosevelt said flatly that he was taking no part in any primary campaign, regardless of any representation to the contray. However, men in high Democratic circles openly were pleased at the Nebraska senatorial result. Burke defeated Gov. Charles W. Bryan. In Democratic circles the former was regarded as a more ardent follower of the president than the late William Jennings Bryan's brother. Then, too, administration followers said that the Democratic vote in Ohio promised to exceed Republican ballots for the fi-st time in a prmary election in the Buckeye state.

More Recommendations LITTLE ROCK— Recommendations for the inclusion of five more counties : n the secondary Arkansas drouth relief area was made Wednesday by Chas. S. Bouton, agricultural statistician of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, and T. Roy Reid; state drouth relief director. This recommendation, if approved by Washington authorities, will give Arkansas three secondary druoth relief counties and will place the entire southwestern part of the state in the secondary area. There are now 14 primary drouth relief counties, princU pally in the northwestern and the north central part of the state. Mr. Bouton left for re-inspection of counties in the northwestern section, and will return Saturday. H. L. Rasor, assistant statistician; returned Wedensday from a survey p£ druoth conditions in Saline, Hit Springs, Clark, Ouachita, Union, Columbia, Nevada, LaFayette, Miller Little River, Howard and Pike counties. He reported drouth conditions fairly uniform, except in Pike and Hempi stead counties, which are extremely spotted in degree of drouth effect, Ouachita and Union counties, which have had some rains in the west portion and Columbia county which has had rain in the east half. In some of the counties he found the percentage of crop yield in the lowlands lower than in the hilly sections, despite the comparatively favorable condition of lowland crops. General shortage of water supplies had not become a serious problem in that section, Mr. Rasor said. Residents of many comities expressed themselves as preferring not to be included in emergency drouth relief areas, Mr. Rasor said, and are reluctant to sell or sacrifice their cattle.
